LaSalle General Hospital Services

In-Patient Acute Care

We understand that we aren’t a level-one trauma center – we don’t do heart transplants – but we aren’t a band-aid station either.  LGH excels in the delivery of quality, affordable primary healthcare.  That means when you get sick and have to go to the hospital, but don’t need an ICU or specialized care, we are the place to go.

Our goal is to not ever have you in our hospital beds, but should you get sick enough to need us, we’re here, ready to serve you.   In-patient acute care means that you have an illness or injury that requires a hospital stay to get you better.

We have sixty in-patient rooms and the professional staff ready to take care of you when you get here.

LaSalle Family Medicine Clinic

Nondiscrimination Policy

We are emphasizing wellness and preventative care.  When we say that we want you out of hospital beds, our goal is to ensure you aren’t sick or injured, and the best way to do that is through regular, proactive well care and preventative healthcare.  With clinics throughout East Central Louisiana our physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants are ready to get you well and keep you well.

Our providers ensure you have all the screenings you need, when you need them.  It’s more important to see your physician regularly than to only see him or her when you get really sick.

Let us keep you well – call us today to make an appointment or just walk on in…we’re ready to see you! more

LaSalle Primary Healthcare Center

Nondiscrimination Policy

LaSalle Primary Health Care is located in the Catahoula Medical Complex (the old Catahoula Parish Hospital building) on Highway 84 in Jonesville.  For appointments please call (318)-339-9900.

Providers currently working full-time at LPHC include Dr. Pat Flaherty, Family Medicine, and Jerry Stallings, Family Nurse Practitioner, while Dr. Tariq Ahmed, Pediatrics, and Dr. Whit Gallaspy, Gynecology work at the clinic part-time more
